Sixth-Grade Band offers the opportunity to participate in an instrumental music program dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in music through performance. Students participate in full-band rehearsals that meet every third day. Students will also attend one individual band lesson every 3 weeks for a total of 3 or 4 lessons per trimester.
Curriculum for this course is an extension of their 5th grade band experience. In sixth grade, more focus is placed on developing a student’s ensemble and individual performance skills to achieve musical growth. The goal is to give students the skills necessary to gain independence so they can discover and play all forms of music. All music classes are year-long commitments.
Students perform 3 evening concerts during the school year.
